ORC 2006 (side note: to Dawn Marie and wyna_hiros, with love from Jade and Summer)

Well, another ORC has gone by. As the sun sets, the people scramble, and the palm trees swish in the wind, we can say farewell to another year of..."ARE YOU GOING TO PASADENA OR WHAT?!" Sorry...that was one of the quirky occasions of riding in a shuttle from the LAX airport. Truly fascinating. LOL.



To wyna-hiros:
Let's start from the beginning of the photo op line. We waited. Summer and I had photo ops between the both of us and just having a good time with the visuals up on stage (if you know what I mean, nudge nudge). Then it was our turn. First photo op is Elijah and I (standard procedure). I walk up to him and was about to say my pertinent "hey Elijah" when he says "What's that?!" Confused I looked to where he was pointing (first initial reaction was boobs because that's what it looked like on his end) and then realized that I had placed a rather large button I had made on my shirt (close to hip).

Well, what can I say? I have to explain don't I? The button was a picture of your drawing wyna_hiros. Your Kevin Sin City anime that I loved so much and asked you if I could use it on a shirt or button (you so rock). So I explained to him it was by you and a little about your work and how fabulous you are at it. He said "That's fucking awesome," and I said "yeah!" Then we took our pic.

Now here comes my "DUMBASS! WHY DIDN'T YOU...?" part. After the shot, he looked at it again. He glanced at it, I think, one or two more times before leaving the photo ops we had with him. As I left the room and started down the hallway with Summer it dawned on me "JADE! You DUMBASS! Why didn't you give it to him? He was staring at it! Duh! Hello? Anybody home?" I could just kick myself for it. However, the day was saved later on as another friend of mine had autographs with him and delivered the button for me. So wyna...Elijah has a small piece of your talent with him. Sadly, no pics of him holding your pin. Creation still honored the "no pic taking in autograph line" rule (bastards).

To Dawn:
I love you girl. Summer and I thought about you the entire time we were at ORC. And so...we dedicate this to you in honor of your rockin' personality!

Photo op story continued...

So my particular single shot was over. It was Summer's turn for her single shot. She got a hug and it was cuuuute, awww, then they took their shot. By then, Summer and I had two more photo ops left. So...Dawn...little did you know your sneaky friend had a plan. A plan in which you sparked in my head shortly before taking off to L.A. I pull out an 8x10 of you in your New Year's hat and outfit, where you look sex-ay girl and I said "do you recognize her?" He said "Yes. I do. Trying to remember exactly wheeeree..." He was kind of trailing off to peruse through his mental filing cabinet I guess. I said "20 Dolla Holla girl?" He said "Ohhhh yeah. I remember now" with a smile on his face.

I then explained to him how you couldn't make it to ORC this time and was sorry to miss it. I told him this was a surprise for you and that would he be kind enough to hold you in his hands for the photo. He said "Sure!" Then with the click of the camera, here we are!

Now you've been there girl! I will be sending you pics. All of us and of you he held in his hands. Hope you love it. You don't know how hard it was for me not to say anything to you that night when you called me asking how it went with Elijah.

And now...here are some teasers of what's to come from the panels. I really am not going to go into too much detail on what the panels were about because A) someone else most likely already posted and has a better memory than I, B) I was taking pictures and I am a photographic whore, and C) I suck at transcribing if I'm excited. Enjoy!

Awesome pictures, Jade. You did quite well. Were you really close in front? My pictures came out not so good.

BTW, you look adorable in your pic with Elijah! I love how your hair is styled.

*hugs*

Heeeey! *hugs*

Crap, we didn't meet up again after we hooked up. Sorry about that. You so rocked in your Frodo outfit. Here's the funny story about these pictures. No I wasn't up close. In fact I was right behind the last row of Elven seats. The camera I have is one of those awesome top-of-the-line Minoltas that just worked out so well. I'm sorry your shots didn't fair too well. Where were you seated? Nice seeing you for the first time...again. Ha ha!

I believe you're confusing me with Primmie. the lady who always dresses like Frodo. I know Primmie, but I am not her! There are several people who use the handle Primula Baggins, so it does happen that I get confused with her.

But you and I were going to meet up but never did. So many fun people to hang out with. It was a great time for us all. If I ever get my photo op scanned, I'll send it to you.

Lordy, were you tired after all this like I was? I was about comatose yesterday at work!

Ah nuts! We were supposed to meet up. Next time we will, I promise (you will be there I hope). I'm still fuzzy but I'm slowly regaining the senses. It's been a crazy weekend. Yes! Please do post/send your photo op as soon as you can!

Yes I do remember you! I believe I have a pic of you from this weekend right? I'm still weeding through everything. I took over 400 pics from this weekend. Good Lord I'm a photo whore! I can't help it...

Did you? Huh, I don't remember. But wow, 400 pix, yikes! I forgot to bring my camera >.< but that did make getting into certain events easier *rollseyes*

*rolls eyes*

Tell me about it. I was slightly annoyed at the photo taking rules still in place despite what they did at ELF. I guess we're not to be trusted or anything. :P

Yeah, something like that I guess. Just can't trust fen, they're crazy, you know. Never know what they'll get up to if left to their own devices. Have to be watched at all times. ^_^ btw, hope you don't mind that I friended you...

Fens? Crazy? Surely not. I think there's some discrimination going on here...

P.S. Yes and I friended you too! Thanks!

Re: Ohhhhhhhhhh Myyyyyyyyyy Goooooooooood!!!!!!!!!!

How in the world did you get him to do that silly pose in your icon and write "You're too Sexy" ? I'm too shy!
blaze_faerie at 2006-01-24 07:00 (UTC) (Link)

Re: Ohhhhhhhhhh Myyyyyyyyyy Goooooooooood!!!!!!!!!!

I just took a $20 bill to him and asked if he would use his hand to pull it from my clevage but he went right for the mouth! Then later my friend asked him to sign it and he personalized it for me... We're never too shy to do the things we really want!!!

Re: Ohhhhhhhhhh Myyyyyyyyyy Goooooooooood!!!!!!!!!!

Blaze...gotta be the bravest and most clever photo done by a fan I've ever seen. Your icon should be awarded Best Icon Ever!
And Jade...thanks for the great pics and wonderful report!!!
blink back to let me know
bunniewabbit at 2006-01-24 06:05 (UTC) (Link)
I tracked you over here. *snerk* These are fabulous photos, and a fun report! Your camera really must be quite good, because it looks like you were in the front! Awesome! May I link this in my LJ? I'm sure people would love to see your pics. :)

Oh, and is *points to icon* this the graphic from your button? I LOVE THAT THING. I'm so glad you managed to give it to him. :)
jade_baggins
jade_baggins at 2006-01-24 06:11 (UTC) (Link)
Yes! Please do! Like I said, I will have more to put up. I took so many photos and I need to figure out which, why, and where. I do know there are some "crotch" worthy shots on the camera. Definitely for the iconage industry. ;)

And if you see wyna, let her know! I'm going to post to one of her LJ's in a bit here. I only wish I could have taken a pic of him with the pin. Damn Creation and their photo rules! But at least Elijah has her work! (unless she's given him something before...)
jade_baggins
jade_baggins at 2006-01-24 06:13 (UTC) (Link)
Damn reply button! I meant to add that YES! It's the same drawing as in your icon. The whole body version. I loved that drawing and had to make it into a button. As luck would have it, it caught Elijah's eyes.

bunniewabbit at 2006-01-24 06:15 (UTC) (Link)
I actually did let her know, back when she first posted it (which is when I got permission to make the icon, as well).

The coolest thing about it? Is that people give him Frodo stuff all the time, but I doubt he's ever gotten anything Kevin-related. I'll bet he was thrilled. I know he was very pleased to sign a photo of Kevin for a friend of mine at ELF. :) Wouldn't it be cool if he actually puts it on his jacket and it shows up in photographs?

jade_baggins at 2006-01-24 06:22 (UTC) (Link)
Oh hell yeah! And who knows? It might! I originally wanted to make a shirt but ran out of time before going to ORC so I just did that button. I mean it was the first thing that flew out of his mouth when I walked up. "What's that?!" Woohoo!

Sounds like you had so much fun. I wish I could have been there with you *sigh*
The pic of you and Lij and the pic, so awesome. What a wonderful idea :) *hugs*

AW! CUTE! I love his hair long, or short, or anything.:P
I'm so jeaolous you got to go, I always wanna go to one.
I love your recaps too, I got to meet Sean once, and I made a fool of myself.:)

I see they got a better backdrop for the pics than last year. Thanks for the report and pics and for thinking of Dawn. Not to mention for giving Elijah a cool moment with the button.

Oh! That is very cool! Thanks a lot for letting me know, and I'm glad he liked it. <3

Kevin was a very fun character to watch him play. :)
